Meet Evaluna Montaner, who's sentimental, romantic, fresh, fun -- and very talented. As the daughter of Venezuelan singer Ricardo Montaner and sister of Mau & Ricky, Montaner is also flaunting a new stage in her career that shows her professional growth.

“My dad has always told me to be myself and continue being myself, no matter what’s going on in the industry,” she tells Billboard. “My musical proposal was going to be something else at the beginning, but I finally found my style. My dad always told me to keep grounded, and I’m happy that his advice works for me.”

Besides growing up in a musical family, the 21-year-old songstress admits that her inspiration also comes from artists such as Ed Sheeran, and her boyfriend, Camilo, who’s also in the music biz. “My boyfriend has helped me a lot with my music,” she says. “I now know how to discover new things when I’m listening to music and pay attention to every detail. It’s been a nice adventure, discovering this side of me.”

Montaner recently debuted “Me Libere," which features inspirational lyrics that encourage you to be free, and an accompanying vibrant music video filmed around the colorful culture of India. Montaner is a diamond who shines on her own, and her enchanting voice works beautifully with any genre, as you can observe in “Me Libere.”
